Registration for HVLN/E-School courses is done by a faculty member (Site Facilitator) at your school. All schools determine which faculty member will be the Site Facilitator. This is how to get started and oriented with our online system.
How to Get Started
The recommended method for registration is to have the student AND counselor or Site Facilitator look at the course offerings together and decide if any of them meet the student’s needs. If there are desired courses, the counselor or Site Facilitator ensures that the student understands that online courses take a lot of work and discipline – different than the usual in-class learning situation (not necessarily harder – but sometimes – it just might take more motivation and personal drive.)
With the careful selection of the course and a firm understanding by the student of the diligence required, the Site Facilitator will register the student for a particular course. If the course is closed/filled, a student may be waitlisted.
MANDATORY PARTICIPATION IN THE REQUIRED ONLINE SHORT COURSE FOR ALL STUDENTS MUST BE COMPLETED AFTER REGISTRATION – BUT BEFORE CLASS BEGINS!
After registering for an online course, the student is also registered in an online training course that provides information on being an online student and using our Course Management System (Blackboard). This training must take place before the start of the semester. After participating in this short course, the student takes a quiz and MUST pass with a score of 80% or better. Once the student passes the quiz, he/she will be informed as to when and how to get started in his/her online course.
